Spectral Compressor. It's incredible that FOSS audio production tools are at a level where top EDM producers make videos about them. Props to au5 for acknowledging that it's not just free, but also open-source.

It never fails to amaze me how widespread #Matrix is, while it flies under the radar.

It's not only for #FOSS projects, though its users do include Mozilla, Eclipse, Ubuntu, GNOME, Fedora, KDE, openSUSE, FSFE, W3C, et al!

There's massive adoption in the European public sector, where there's an appreciation of open source, open standards, and digital sovereignty – most notably in Germany.

@element put together a great landing page showcasing Matrix adoption in Germany: https://element.io/matrix-in-germany

I am _very_ excited about all that we are doing at @matrix to establish frameworks for more community participation and open governance.

The Governing Board, working groups, and fiscal sponsorship, oh my! https://matrix.org/blog/2024/02/opening-up-foundation/

"Free Software" is ambiguous
"Open Source" is not enough

Both terms also carry negative history.

I noticed "libre" is becoming more common and is well understood in several languages.

Maybe it's time for a renaissance with #LibreSoftware

You've heard of WE RATE DOGS, but are you ready for WE RATE LAPTOP LIDS? 💻😄

Maybe your laptop is decorated with stickers from your favorite #FOSS projects or Linux distros. Maybe it's adorned with your favorite bands, characters, comics, or coffee shops.

Or maybe it's just a sticker of your awesome silly face, like this one from Thunderbird's own @brendan (Shows restraint, perfect centering, makes us laugh: 11/10).

Take a photo of YOURS and email it to us: 💌 community@thunderbird.net


Is the term libre as in "libre software" understood in English ?

“Improved build validation, increased moderation, and the long-awaited switch to libappstream” by @barthalion

Heads up to app developers: Flathub’s automatic build validation is more thorough now, and includes checks for issues we previously would have only flagged manually. There’s a chance that if your app has been passing continuous integration checks previously, it will fail now; here’s why, and what to do about it:

The next beta version of #Signal will be version 7.0.0.
There's a good reason for the round number. This will be the first version where usernames and phone number privacy are available outside of the staging environment.
From this version on, you'll be able to talk to people on Signal without revealing your phone number, and also, you may use Signal without revealing to people who have your number saved that you do.
This is huge.

It currently holds 102 modules, all of them under a #FOSS license and with their source code transparently available.

Did you that calDAV has a journal feature? I use it to keep meeting notes stored alongside my calendar; no need to go hunting for notes when you can just click on the date the meeting took place in your email / calendar client! I've been using KDE's Kontact for this on my GNU/Linux PC, and I just discovered @jtx for Android which I use alongside @davx5app.

I'm very happy to see how far the #IzzyOnDroid repository has come. Especially with all the recent scanner updates it has become so much more than "a secondary repo to get more FOSS app from".

I'd argue at this point it may very well be the most secure and well-maintained repository of #FOSS apps on #Android.

Hey all 😃 we're trying to get a build ready for the #Keyoxide mobile app's big update, just in time for #FOSDEM to demonstrate during the event and we wanted to ask you if you'd be willing to help us out by translating some words and short sentences 🤗 big thanks!

Boosts appreciated 🙏
